This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 60/969,127, filed Aug. 30, 2007, which is hereby incorporated by reference for all purposes.
The current and next-generation wireless communication systems will utilize improved PA efficiency technology for a variety of broadband and multimedia services, supported by the advanced wireless RF transmitter, in which the linear and high-efficient high power amplifier will improve the transmitted quality, system performance and cost saving. Traditional predistortion technologies and schemes used widely to linearize PA in wireless communication systems are (i) analog feed-forward linearizers implemented in RF band by means of analog hardware circuit, and (ii) digital predistortion schemes in the baseband that involve a feedback channel and driven by digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms and integrated circuits.
Conventional analog predistortion schemes are mainly based on the principle of error subtraction and power-matching with dedicated hardware circuitries to realize non-linear corrections to PA. These approaches must use an auxiliary PA and complicated hardware circuitries to match exactly the transmitted power-balance, time-delay and errors generated by the main PA. After a perfect matching is obtained, the non-linear distortion errors from the main PA can then be canceled by those distortion errors from the auxiliary PA. Due to the complexities of the nonlinear predistortion circuits, which among other things involve many variables and parameters, the analog schemes require significant fine tuning and other calibration efforts. In addition, such traditional analog schemes are also vulnerable to fluctuating environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity changes, since perfect alignments of the main PA's signal and that of the auxiliary PA are vital. As a result, traditional predistortion schemes are costly to implement and are limited in their predistortion accuracy and stability in commercialized wireless system environment.
Conventional DSP-based digital predistortion schemes utilize digital microprocessors to compute, calculate and correct PA's nonlinearities: they perform fast tracking and adjustments of signals in the PA system. Since the computations are performed in the digital domain, such digital schemes can also accommodate a wider fluctuations of environmental conditions, and reduce the extent of fine-tuning or calibrations during the manufacturing stage. However, traditional digital predistortion schemes necessitate coded in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) channel signals in the baseband as the required ideal or reference signals. As a result, the feedback signal from PA output must be down-converted to baseband area by the arrangement of down-converting and demodulation circuitries. Therefore, in order to deploy traditional digital predistortion schemes into base-stations, the digital predistortion engines must be embedded into the baseband architecture of base-stations. This embedment is a practical implementation challenge since it is frequently inconvenient or impossible to modify the baseband architectures of existing base-stations or base-station designs. Furthermore, since traditional digital predistortion approaches require baseband I-Q signal sources to operate, they are inapplicable to certain RF systems that do not possess any baseband I-Q signal sources, such as repeater and indoor signal coverage sub-systems.
The present disclosure teaches an approach to linearize the output of a power amplifier (PA), such as those used in wireless base stations for communications networks, using one or more analog multipliers (the “Analog Embodiment”). The disclosed approach is especially applicable to all wireless radio frequency (RF) transmitter systems and improves both the power efficiency and linearity of wireless transmission systems. Applications of the present invention are suitable for use with all wireless base-stations, access points, mobile equipment and wireless terminals, portable wireless devices, and other wireless communication systems such as microwave and satellite communications. Various alternative embodiments are disclosed.
The first of the present inventions relates to a predistortion method to linearize a power amplifier (PA) by using one or more analog multipliers together with an adaptive predistortion algorithm implemented in a processor, such as a DSP-based processor or similar device, to yield a PA output with high linearity and high power efficiency. The use of analog multipliers permit the predistortion to be performed at the RF band, rather than being down-converted and then upconverted, which in turn allow a single PA to continue to support, without internal modification, the multiple modulation schemes typically managed by a modern PA. The following Detailed Description of the invention may be better understood when taken in conjunction with the appended Figures, described below.
On a general level, the analog approach of the present invention approach comprises one or more analog multipliers to combine RF modulated signal vRF(t) and predistortion control signal vp(t) (hereinafter as “RF Modulated Signal” and “Predistortion Control Signal” respectively). Although these devices can be implemented as multipliers in many embodiments, in general they are better thought of as amplitude adjusters. In some embodiments, they also can be referred to as gain adjusters.
The Predistortion Control Signal vp(t) from the DSP control board is adaptively generated, based on the comparison of the RF Modulated Signal—the ideal input signal from the modulator—and the feedback signal vo(t) from the PA's output (sometimes referred to hereinafter as the “Feedback Signal”). This permits the predistortion architecture of the present invention to quickly track and compensate for the non-linear characteristics of PA in real-time.
The Analog Embodiment can have one or multiple analog multipliers, and can also mix and match with other analog components such as phase splitters, phase shifters, attenuators, filters, couplers, mixers, low-noise amplifiers, buffers, envelope detectors, and etc., to provide additional controls, features and functionalities.
In an embodiment, the Predistortion Control Signal from the DSP controller is a single analog signal without the requirement of I and Q signals. Such Predistortion Control Signal is first generated by an adaptive calculation in the DSP processor as a baseband signal and then converted to the analog version by a digital-to-analog converter (DAC). All non-linear predistortion correction calculations in this architecture are completed by digital signal processing; hence, our Analog Embodiment is an implementation of digital predistortion in RF band. By using this approach, the predistortion system does not need the original I and Q digital signals, which are typically required by traditional digital predistortion architectures. The predistortion system simply processes the RF signal directly from the modulator of a base-station system—the RF Modulated Signal—and the feedback signal from the PA's output—the Feedback Signal. At first, the two RF signals feeding into the predistortion system are down-converted by analog circuits to a lower frequency for further analog-to-digital converter (ADC) processing. Then, the digitized signals are processed in the DSP processor by an adaptive algorithm, presented in U.S. Pat. No. 6,985,704, to track, calculate and correct the non-linear distortions of the PA.
The embodiment of the analog approach shown in
the RF Modulated Signal from input source and the Feedback Signal from PA output are down-converted, respectively, by analog devices, such as mixers.
the analog intermediate frequency (IF) signals are digitized after the ADCs for digital predistortion correction processing;
an adaptive algorithm operates in the DSP processor and the result is a digital predistortion control signal vr(t) (hereinafter as “D-P Control Signal”). Such digital output signal is converted to an analog signal by a DAC, which becomes the Predistortion Control Signal, and such Predistortion Control Signal is then fed to at least one analog multiplier to operate;
the RF Modulated Signal and Predistortion Control Signal are mixed or multiplied in the analog multiplier(s), and the output is a predistorted analog signal vin(t) (the “Predistortion Analog Signal”) which is then fed to PA for wireless transmission.
These general functions can be better appreciated from
An input down-converter circuit 20 receives an idealized reference RF Modulated Signal vRF from modulator in base station, and is biased by a local oscillator 40, such that it provides an output vd to an analog-to-digital converter 21. The ADC 21 converts the signal vd to digital form, whereupon it is provided as one input to a Digital Predistortion Processor (DPP) 200, which can be configured as shown in the attached exhibits and typically comprises a digital signal processor with lookup table implementing the algorithm disclosed in related application Ser. No. 11/262,079, attached.
A feedback down-converter circuit 26, also biased by a local oscillator 40, receives a raw Feedback Signal vo(t) from the output of the PA, and provides a feedback signal Vf to an feedback ADC 25. The digital output of the ADC 25 then provides a second input, i.e. feedback signal, to the Digital Predistortion Processor 200. The Digital Predistortion Processor 200, discussed in greater detail below, provides a digital output signal vr, the D-P Control Signal, to a DAC 30, which converts the digital signal to an analog form, where it is combined with the RF Modulated in the multiplier 11.
As shown in
The predistortion controller lookup tables 33I-33Q are memory units designed to store the predistortion signal for high power amplifier linearization. The predistortion signals in the tables are based on the error generated by a comparison of the ideal signal vd and the feedback signal vf and the presented adaptive algorithm. The data stored in the tables 33I-Q can be updated by adaptive iteration as described hereinafter, and form digitally indexed data reflecting the nonlinear characteristics of the power amplifier.
By comparison of AM-AM and AM-PM information between the idealized RF Modulated Signal vRF(t) and the Feedback Signal vo(t), the Digital Predistortion Processor calculates the error in the amplitude and phase components of the output signal vo(t) caused by the non-linear transmission characteristics of the high power amplifier 12.
Based on the error information obtained by the foregoing comparison, the predistortion processor, based on the lookup table algorithm disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 6,985,704 [attached hereto at Appendix 1], calculates and generates adaptively a compensation signal that is of inverse characteristics with the transform function of the PA 12 to pre-distort the AM-AM and AM-PM distortion caused by the PA 12.
The outputs vp, the Predistortion Control Signal, of the predistortion lookup table 33I-33Q are fed to multiplier 11, after an adder 31 and a digital-to-analog converter 30, to modify the RF Modulated Signal from modulator 10. The output of the multiplier is the required Predistortion Analog Signal vin(k) that is of an inverse non-linearity with that of the power amplifier 12 to yield a pre-compensation to the input of high power amplifier.
It will be appreciated by those skilled in the art that there can be a signal difference between two signals, ideal RF Modulated Signal vRF and Feedback Signal, vo(t), when they arrive at predistortion controller of
The use of the look-up tables 33 permits a memory function to be introduced into at least some embodiments of the present invention. The lookup table of the predistortion controller 5 is based on a stored compensation principle that maps a set of input data into a digital output, and updated adaptively. Based on the stored function, each output signal of lookup table is actually related to both the current and the previously transmitted signal, and therefore has a memory function which compensate not only for the non-linearity of the PA, but also avoids the need for a special time-delay compensation circuit such as typically used in the prior art. See particularly U.S. Prov. Pat. Appn. Ser. No. 60/898,312, filed Jan. 29, 2007, entitled Power Amplifier Time-delay Invariant Predistortion Methods and Apparatus.
As shown in

The DPP 325 provides a correction characteristic in response to the signals from the ADC's 320 and 345 that is broken into factors appropriate to each phase, and outputs that correction characteristics appropriate for each phase to respective DAC's 350 and 355. Each of the DAC's 350 and 355 then output their respective signal to associated amplitude adjusters 360 and 365, where they are combined with the inputs from the phase splitter 305. The quadrature components are then reassembled at adder 370 to yield the predistorted output signal. With such an approach, it will be appreciated by those skilled in the art that no baseband signals are needed. The RF signal is essentially split into phase-orthogonal components which are independently controlled by two signal processors, then summed to yield one corrected RF signal. An embodiment of such an arrangement can achieve 360° phase shift and greater than 20 dB magnitude control. These benefits enable higher precision, which in turn yields faster convergence and greater stability.
Referring next to
As mentioned earlier, the Analog Embodiment is capable of allowing a single PA to support multi-modulation schemes, multi-carriers and multi-channels. Since the RF Modulated signal can pass through the multiplier as an analog signal, a single path is sufficient to support such multi-modulation schemes. In addition, while the entries in the lookup table which forms part of the DPP 200 may be in a variety of forms, in at least some embodiments the entries will be stored in terms of polar coordinates to reduce table size and system efficiency.
It will be appreciated by those skilled in the art, in light of the foregoing embodiments and teachings, that numerous other alternatives and embodiments that do not depart from the invention will be apparent to those skilled in the art. As a result, the invention is not intended to be limited by the foregoing description, but only by the appended claims.
